J. A. Arnold, Government Edi
tor, Testifies in the Ever*
Wickersham Causes Stir in the
Senate by Refusing to Sup=
ply Desired Information
WASHINGTON, March 25.—Joseph A. ;
Arnoid. editor in chief of tho division
of publications of the department of
agriculture, today assumed responsi
bility for the suppression of the much
talked of report on the feasibility of
reclaiming: the Florida everg-ladep.
He told the Moss committee that he
had recommended that the report be
suppressed and had voiced that opinion
to Secretary Wilson in June, 1910.
"Why did you oppose the publication
of this report?" asked Chairman Moss.
Boca use of the obvious irreconcil
able difference of the engineers of the
department and the conflict of opinion
outside the department." answered Ar
nold. "It was apparent to me that no
report could be issued with the unani
mous approval of the department. T
thought that it was a time to exercise
caution and prudence. I recommended,
therefore, that no report be issued at
all. A bulletin from the department
should be the last word from the de
partment, and I didn't think it fair
c people of the country to give
them any bulletin which was not in
dorsed by the department. The secre
tary agreed with me."
the only witness during
: fternoon and will resume the
stand tomorrow morning.
I \IKF.D WITH M\>V
Arnold admitted that he .had talked
about the everglades to men who had
interests in them. He said that many
persons called at the department to
talk about the everglades.
"I'o you know of any one approach
ing either yourself or the secretary of
agriculture or any other official of the
department improperly in this matter?"
asked Representative Sloan, a member
of the committee.
"Absolutely no one; no, sir," replied
The witness described an interview
id with Representative Frank
<^lark of Florida, whose charges as to
the department's conduct in the ever
glades survey brought on the present
investigation. He said that Clark
called with a couple of friends. He
detailed the conversation and said that >
• Mark had declared that if the ever- |
glades report was very favorable it
would hurt some of his constituents
who owned Florida land outside of the
everglades that was just as good, as
Arnold said the publication of the I
circular letter on the everglades which i
nid to have hurt the sale of the
iands was "very irregular and un
usual." This letter was mailed out to
inquirers from the department, and
S- nator Fletcher of Florida, induced
Secretary Wilson to suppress it.
C <J. Elliott, formerly chief drain
. ngineer of the department of i
agriculture, categorically denied that I
»»e had anything to do, directly or mdi- ]
<ectly, vrtth the suppression or delay of
the department's report.
The witness said George McCabe, so
licitor of the agricultural department,
after the house had directed the Ever
glades- inquiry had Instructed him to
jrroduce all papers bearing upon the
Subject but later declined to give him
a 4 copy of the Everglades report.
WICKERSHAM CAUSES STIR
Attorney General Wickersham caused
_ stir in the seriate today by refusing
to supply information concerning* the
reorganization of the International
Harvester company, asked by a reso
lution adopted March 16. Senator
Bacon took exception not only to the
attorney general's action but to the
manner of communicating it.
Wickersham said in,, his letter that
it was incompatible with the inter
est of the United States to supply the
information desired because the cor
respondence on file related to business
which was unfinished.
Senator Bacon said the language was
discourteous and that apparently the
attorney general had forgotten that he
was a creature of congress. Wicker
"I am directed by the president to
j»fiy that in my opinion it is not com
patible to supply the Information."
Senator Borah said he did not see
how the president could give Instruc
tions regarding the attorney general's
"Nor do I," responded Bacon. Sev
eral senators suggested that Bacon
fhould move that the communication
be not received, but he did not do so
and on motion of Senator Lea, It was

Wireless Reduces Peril;
Prevents Enormous Loss
Matson freighter Enterprise, which lost propeller 300 mi/es off shore, but
Was able by wireless to summon aid and is being towed back to port.
News of Mishap at Sea Flashed Instantly;
Ship Speeds to the Rescue ;
Wireless telegraphy reduces the
perils of the <=ea and proof of the fact
was furnished yesterday in the case
of the Matson Navigation company's
freighter Enterprise which left Satur
day for Hilo and is now being towed
back by the Matson liner Lurline.
At 2 o'clock yesterday morning the
tail shaft of the Enterprise was broken
when the vessel was a little more than
300 miles from here. Radio Operator
J. B. Taylor notified the wireless sta
tion in this city of the vessel's plight,
stating the position of the Enterprise
and from this information Captain
Matson, president of the company,
knew that the homeward bound liner
JLurline could reach the Enterprise
more quickly than could a tug sent
from this port, without much change
in the Lurline's course, so he tele
graphed to the Lurline. The Lurline
and Enterprise exchanged messages
and in less than three hours after the
accident occurred Matson received word
that the Lurline would take the En
terprise in tow and would have the
freighter In port early tomorrow.

It is expected that by the end of the

Before the day of the wireless, the

might have been a month or two be
fore the steamer* venl In search could
have located the disabled freighter.
This might have involved those on

have cost underwriters and owners,

Underwriters, discussing the case of
the Enterprise'yesterday, said that the
value of the service rendered by the
wireless in this one case would prob
ably more than offset th*» cost of its

Mr. and Mrs. Farnsworth attended a
St. Patrick's ball given by the Red
wood City Woman's club last Monday
night and wore the costumes of an
Irish "Paddy" and "Bridget." They
were criticized severely by certain lo

MARE ISLAXD, March 25.—As a re

certain escapades that reached the ears
of Commandant H. T. Mayo, U. S. N.,
early this year, Captain Ernest E. West,

Wests court martial was brought
about when he left the hospital, where

of Captain Henry T. Mayo, commandant
of the yard at night, while intoxicated,
to proteffc against the action taken by
the medicaj board which convened at

While intoxication is not supposed to

would have, resulted in a much stiffer
sentence than that which he re«eived.

IN FEDERAL COURT

NEW YORK, March 25.—Judge Hand

otherwise, he would instruct the jury

the loan which conveyed control of its
rival. :;Vi ■;■:* -;.- . ■;.' . . ;• ' ' ';,' "
